Introduction of PEEK

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic known for its exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. It belongs to the family of polyaryletherketones and is recognized for its ability to perform in demanding environments where other materials may not withstand the conditions. PEEK is widely used in industries ranging from aerospace and automotive to medical and electronics due to its unique combination of attributes.
